A Perfect Pairing: Nikki Sivils & Basically Bare!31 May 2012 | By admin in Altered Art, Cupcakes, Hearts
Jen Matott here to share a perfect pairing! We got the chance to work with one of Nikki Sivils new lines. I was honored to be on Nikki Sivils inaugural design team for several years and loved every minute of it! So, when I found out we were using her new designs, I was thrilled!!! I got to use “Messages” for my swap line. I know I wanted to do something with notes or communication. I have some handmade cards floating around in the bottom of my drawer in my art room… I needed a place to house them ready to use for the perfect occasion! So, I repurposed a pasta box into a card holder.
Here’s the finished project! I used Nikki’s letter stickers for the word “Cards”.
The dividers have embellishments like a cupcake for BIRTHDAY Card catagory. I colored the canvas using the Zig Fabric markers and peeled the top layer off the cardboard bottom to make it look more like the cupcake holder.
So, not only did I upcycle a recyclable box into a useful and cute item, but I got to use Nikki Sivils papers to make a fun project! This line was perfect and the Basically Bare shapes work beautifully!
